New year new skincare. How I changed up my routine Garnier Moisture Bomb



If you've been living under a rock for the last few months you won't have seen the hubbub about the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask. I've talked about budget sheet masks in the past but this is the first one I've seen available in the UK that didn't have to be imported. At £1.50 per mask it was a big deal. I didn't jump on the bandwagon though because I've never had much luck with Garnier products before and I had quite the backlog of masks to go through myself. 

Then I saw this set available at Christmas from Tesco. The set contained a 3-in-1 day cream and a gel formula night cream plus retailing separately at £7.99 each plus one of the famous sheet masks. 

The set was £7.50. 

Had to be done!

Now the mask itself I was not impressed with. For something that boasts 7 days worth of serum in one go I did not expect to feel dry immediately after. Thankfully this is a team effort and I immediately applied the night cream. It was a revelation. The silicone based formula (we all know how much I love silicone!) means that the product glides over the skin so you feel an immediate difference whilst all of the pomegranite and other fruit extracts (found in all three products) take care of the long term effects. It is definitely "the bomb"! 

I wasn't expecting to but I love these products on my skin and I actually look forward to applying the night cream every evening. As with all skin care I trialled the two moisturisers daily for about a month adding the mask in mid month to get an idea of how it would work with the other products. I may not be fussed on the mask itself but I will definitely be repurchasing the two moisturisers. It's rare that I find a high street moisture range that actually packs the punch that they promise to pack but in my opinion Garnier have really struck it right with these two.

BOOM.

  1. I love Garnier micellar water with oil, it's one of my all time favs above high end cleansers but I too don't do well with Garnier moisturisers etc either so will look out for the night cream moisture bomb x x

A very crafty day out: Annie Sloan workshops at The Craft Loft

In Newcastle, Co. Down, hidden above Annetts Childrenswear is a hidden gem. The Craft Loft is the love child of Phyllis Annett who after years of helping to run the successful childrens clothing shop with her husband - his family's business for several generations - was looking for a new creative outlet; something that would bring business and life to the upstairs of their gorgeous converted townhouse. 
And so The Craft Loft was born.
Myself and a few other Northern Irish bloggers were invited down to sample one of the various workshops offered by Phyllis and her family. Whether you want to paint a piece, learn how to decoupage, upholster furniture, or build your own lamps, Phyllis and her family have a number of wonderful classes for you to take all based around the use of the famous Annie Sloan chalk paints and fabrics. I opted for the Paint A Piece class because I wanted to start with the basics of chalk paint and furniture decoration but also because my flat is tiny and packed t…

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted! 

We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you".

Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious ground up lea…

A hearty autumn meal and BBC Good Food Show Competition

As October draws to a close the clocks have turned back and the dark nights have settled in. Carved pumpkins are glowing on doorsteps and, as I walk home from work, the air outside smells of burning wood fires and home baked goodies; as if all of Belfast collectively decided that tonight was going to be as cosy as possible. I love this time of year. 

In the aftermath of Halloween and the looming onslaught of pre-Christmas sales it’s easy to get a bit fed up of November. I mean what is there to do? And with no such celebration as America's Thanksgiving over here what is there to eat?!? Well thankfully there is still a foodie event to keep us going through what could have been an utterly boring culinary month...
The BBC Good Food Show returns to the Belfast Waterfront Hall this November (10th – 12th) and thanks to lovely folks at MCE we have an exciting opportunity which means that you could be seeing your favourite TV chefs such as Nadiya Hussain (Friday) and The Hairy Bikers (Sunday…
